Funding and Payment Options

Funding & Payment Options

How can I pay for my qualification?

We believe everyone should have access to quality education, which is why we have a range of payment options to choose from.


Up-front payment

Available for each of our courses, up-front payment includes all course costs, which are paid in full at the time of enrolment.

You can pay via VISA, MasterCard or a bank deposit.


Instalment plan

Also available for each of our courses, your total course costs are calculated and split across a regular number of payments.

Our instalment plans require an initial deposit on enrolment, followed by recurring weekly or fortnightly payments, until the full course costs have been paid. Payment plans starts from $40 per week.

We offer two instalment options:

Rapid payment plan

Deposit + the remainder of course cost to be paid within 4 months.

Payment plan

Deposit + the remainder of course cost to be paid within 8 months.
